ISTANBUL - Neymar scored two goals and made another as Brazil beat Turkey 4-0 in a friendly on Wednesday, giving coach Dunga his fifth win in a row since returning to the national team after the World Cup.

Neymar broke the deadlock in the 21st minute and rounded off the scoring in the 60th. Turkey defender Semih Kaya scored an own goal in the 25th and Brazil midfielder Willian found the net in the 44th after a pass by Neymar.

The Turkish crowd loudly chanted Neymar's name after his second goal and jeered the home side during parts of the match.

"I was really moved by that," Neymar said. "It's another stadium, another country that will be in my heart forever. I can't explain. I never imagined something like this."

Brazil has won every game since Dunga took over after its disappointing home World Cup. It had previously beaten Colombia, Ecuador, Argentina and Japan.

Dunga's team has outscored its opponents 12-0.

"The team played well from the beginning, defending well, controlling ball possession and capitalizing on the scoring chances that we created," Chelsea midfielder Willian said.
